“We will continue to monitor the conditions here in Hawaii as well as key markets on the mainland to determine the appropriate start date for the pre-travel testing program,” Ige said at a news conference Tuesday.

Tourists continue to flock to Hawaii, with the state recording 2,305 people arriving, including residents returning home, military personnel, visitors, and new residents.

The prior two days saw a total of about 3,345. 

Health department data indicates that about 6 percent of cases have required hospitalization, and the state’s epi curve is exhibiting a sharp decline following a peak in early August.
